  • Real Gamers

    One of the things I really hate, is when people call themselves a gamer, but they aren't. Sure, people who play video-games are called "gamers", but there are very few who deserve the title. "Real Gamers" are a rare breed of gamer... More
  • Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting (My Thoughts on Classic Fighting Games)...

    I admit it. I am a First Person Shooter (FPS) fanboy. And while I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing, I will freely admit that sometimes I forget there are other genres out there. And yes, sometimes I'm so absorbed in the latest FPS... More
  • Play This, Not That (if you have a pinched nerve in your neck)

    I’ve had this pinched nerve on the left side of my neck aggravating the crap out of me off and on (more on than off) for 3 weeks now. I don't like it. Hurts to turn my head, lean back in a chair, roll out of bed, you get the gist. Can’t... More
  • Best Games of 2010

    Ok, so I know the year is hardly over. But since I am about two hundred percent certain I wont be buying any more games this year, I thought I could get a head start on my end of the year lists. 2010 has had some excellent games come out, and it started... More
  • Leslie Nielsen - A Tribute

    Forbidden Planet. The Poseidon Adventure. Two of the best movies ever had Leslie Nielsen in them. Both of his roles in these films were grim and serious, and for awhile nobody thought he could be a comedy man. Then again, they had never seen Airplane... More
  • Game over.A sign that means more than failure.

    Game over... How many times have we seen this screen? How many times have we failed to complete a stage and lost all our lives in the process? To many to count. While the "game over" screen is a way of telling you that you lose and if you like... More
  • Tried and True: Boss Battles

    This will be a series of posts about tried and true gameplay mechanics or features that should really change. First up is Boss Battles. Boss Battles are great ideas. They represent the final challenge in an area or game. Most boss fights, and mini boss... More
  • Thank you, Leslie Nielsen

    As most of you already know, actor Leslie Nielsen died yesterday at the age of 84. I honestly didn't even know that he'd been ill, but I don't really keep up with a lot of the celebrity gossip, and Nielsen wasn't usually found in those... More
  • Leslie Nielsen dies at age 84

    4 Legendary comedic actor Leslie Nielsen died Sunday in a hospital of pneumonia, according to several published reports, his agent and a family member. He was 84 Nielsen... More
  • The Triumphant Return of the Classic Nintendo Games. So Where's Star Fox?

    There are a core group of Nintendo games that will always hold a special place in my heart. Who knows? Maybe your heart too. Games like Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country...Super Metroid and Star Fox. While these games were released at different... More
  • Hero of Time: Why RPGs Need A Solid Hero

    The Legend of Zelda. The name is familiar with just about any gamer, young or old, male or female. Another familiar name is Final Fantasy. Also, Megami Tensei. And Dragon Quest. Dungeons and Dragons, Fallout, Pokemon, and Kingdom Hearts. Just about everyone... More
  • Consoles vs PCs - Crytek weighs in

    I used to play PC games a lot, but I could never keep up with the latest games because my PC wouldn't run them. Or, they would run them, but not at optimum where you can see all the bells and whistles that the game developer obviously wanted you to... More
